About me

Hi, my name is Yvette van Schie and welcome to my holistic eco ethical anti-ageing beauty blog!

I am passionate about taking care of ourselves without hurting the planet, and cruelty-free beauty – no animal should suffer so that a human can look good. Ultimately I would love to see all skincare and makeup being made from natural or biochemically reformulated natural products which are of vegan origin – we do not need chemicals to look good, and do not need animal by-products either.

As a beauty blogger, I share with you 33 years of beauty industry experience on healthy, natural, ethical ways to look beautiful and feel healthy.

Beauty comes from within, it is all about glowing skin through amazing health with the help of high quality, ethical natural skincare. Sometimes with a bit of subtle help on the way which does not include botox.

I enjoy sharing top beauty therapists, personal trainers, health gurus, cosmetic surgeons and natural practitioner’s wellness and beauty secrets. I reveal information which you should, but do not know about, breaking the barriers between those who know and everyone else.

I unveil the lies that the beauty and health industry tells us to keep us spending money on foods and skincare which in actual fact are shortening your life, whilst you think you are living well.

I have written for amazing publications such as  Professional Beauty, a leading industry magazine, whose staff  voted “your articles the most enlightening, educational and enjoyable of all articles submitted”

I write for a cosmetic surgeon, explaining treatments and how they work, and how to get the best results from them.

I also write for other industry specialists – so every day, I learn more and more!

I hope you enjoy my blog! Join my friends in finding out all about how to live a long and healthy life, looking absolutely gorgeous! Please feel free to comment and ask me questions! For all of my blog posts go to my Blog page! 

My beauty therapy training was completed at the elite Ella Bache College of Skin and Beauty Therapy, and I was a member of the AABth, a membership which was acquired through a rigorous exam until the organization closed down.

My studies did not end there, I continued my studies for many years doing short courses to make sure my beauty and health knowledge became very well rounded.

I qualified from the prestigious Sydney College of Makeup Art, after having already worked for Revlon for 2 years as their makeup artist for TV shows, events and representing Revlon at June Dally-Watkins teaching makeup and skincare.

As a makeup artist, I work in film, commercial photography and film, corporate photography and film, fashion, fashion parades and bridal makeup, as well as training up and coming makeup artists.

As a beauty therapist, I train other therapists in specialty workshops and seminars. I have also designed facial treatments and written up treatment manuals.

I have also been commissioned to write training manuals for several skincare companies.

I have also worked in product development, so understand what goes into a product, and why somethings just should not be in your cream.

As a stylist, I have worked with many of the best image-makers, including Robert Pante, stylist to the American Presidents and their wives.

As a holistic facialist, I constantly research skincare products, internal health solutions, and anything to do with anti-aging so that she can write my blog with great confidence, knowing that my information is well-grounded and truthful.

I look forward to you joining me! x
